Comment 427 for bug 1734147

#426 Derek: I understand how you feel, but first of all Ubuntu states that they are not liable for such issues in their disclaimers. They also have LTS versions which have less problems and more support, nobody were forced to upgrade to 17.10. I agree that it's a major blow to their respect and reputation, but they are not financially liable. I believe that there will be a fix though, Ubuntu has temporarily removed 17.10 from canonical and will probably adress the issue more comprehensively soon. In the meantime, there are workarounds that could be tried. I don't know what type of computer you have, but maybe this could be of help: https://www.bios-mods.com/bios-recovery/insyde-bios-recovery/.

Anyways, raging is counterproductive and will only make you feel worse in the long run, keep calm and try all possible solutions while waiting for more info from Ubuntu. Happy new years :)
